Configuration: DB Server "dbc" File

This document describes how to configure dbc files.

What is a DBC file? - A dbc file is a DBAmon configuration file that YOU (the DBAmon user) create which describes how DBAmon should monitor ONE DB instance.

All DBC files must reside in the directory /opt/dbamon/adm/instances for DBAmon Production Mode or in the directory /opt/dbamon/adm/instances_test for DBAmon Test Mode. A DBC file can have any name, but it must end with the suffix "dbc". For example, a valid DBC file name might be: /opt/dbamon/adm/instances/myserver1_instance1.dbc .

A DBC file contains Common Parameters and Parameters that are unique to what you are monitoring (Oracle,Informix,...):
